B) GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
This award will recognize the top northeast Ohio employed Broker in one of the possible categories listed below (D). Normally, because of the level of details required, agents and brokers nominate themselves. Teams will be considered, however, with production and activity levels factored by the number of members on the team. Individual members of a team may submit as individuals: providing the team production numbers reflect the total team production factored by the number of team members. Please note the Judging Criteria and the weight of each criterion as those are the points on which your submission will be judged. Please complete the following form and describe in detail the unique aspects and strategies of your work throughout 2022 that distinguish you in the marketplace.

C) JUDGING CRITERIA
A weighted system is used to evaluate the 6 criteria. For example, “Community Involvement,” with a weight of “2” would be multiplied by the points (1 to 5) assigned by each judge. The total of all weights multiplied by point values is summed from all judges and the highest total score is the winner.

The criteria being judged with weights are:
Community Involvement of Broker (weight 2); Real Estate Industry Involvement of Broker (weight 3); Total Dollar Volume of Deals (weight 3); Total Dollar Volume to Submitting Broker (weight 5); Total Number of Deals (weight 3); Value added to Clients (weight 4).
